Educational Opportunities in the Division of Nephrology

Education Opportunities for Medical Students

Medical students will receive an intensely focused educational experience involving all aspects of renal care for both inpatients and outpatients. Students have the opportunity to get involved in research studies conducted through our research department.

Residency Training

Internal medicine residents have the opportunity to learn about a wide array of common and complex renal disorders. Our Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the area. Medical residents will encounter all aspects of both acute and chronic nephrologic disorders. Residents will have extensive exposure to nephro-oncologic emergencies through the John Theurer Cancer Center, which is one of the busiest and most renowned cancer centers in the country. Residents rotating on the renal service will also be involved in the care of trauma patients who develop renal disorders and will frequently evaluate patients with AKI in multiple ICU settings, including the medical, cardiac, surgical and cardiothoracic ICUs.

Fellowship Program

A nephrology fellowship is offered in collaboration with Rutgers.
